Spring is dress season. From Easter and Passover to weddings, baby showers, and school graduations, there’s always seems to be a reason to dress up. Trying to find a cute, figure-flattering frock is always a challenge, especially when you are a curvy gal.
Here are three plus size spring dresses trending now that are easy to wear and perfect for special occasions.
Yummy Sorbet Colors
If winter isn’t over in your neck of the woods, it will be soon. Put away your blacks and blues (and other dark colors) and indulge yourself with a dress in a pretty spring color. This spring it’s all about yummy sorbet colors, like this pretty fit-and-flare dress in a delicious shade of orange. I just love this color! It reminds me of a creamsicle.
The fit-and-flare styling is great for plus size gals as it provides lovely waist definition while skimming the hips and thighs. The long puffed sleeves smocking at the elbow are new and fresh. A dress like this deserves to stand out on its own so keep your bag and shoes neutral and nude. (A black shoe and bag would drag this down and make it look like Halloween.)
And while we’re talking about shoes, I just have to point out the cool transparent strap on these block heel sandals. Transparent is a major shoe trend this spring so grab these cool futuristic heels and wear them with your favorite jeans too!
Spring is about pretty blooms like tulips, daffodils, and lilacs, so it’s the perfect time to wear a gorgeous spring floral dress. If you’re a plus size gal, look for one with a larger floral print that is in scale with your frame.
To my eye, the larger floral print, the drapey bell sleeves and the pretty pink and fuchsia floral print that pops against the navy makes this dress look so chic and youthful. Play up the bright pops of color in the print with your shoes and accessories. White shoes, which haven’t been around for years, are back ladies. Step into this exciting look and pick up a pair. You will look instantly chic!
Lacy and Lovely
If you like the idea of spring florals but can’t quite embrace a bold pattern, get your fix in a more subtle way. This pretty navy dress is one way of doing it. The combination of a flowy, draped bodice with a slim lace floral pencil skirt is smart and sophisticated.
Full-figured women can definitely wear pencil skirts. Just be sure they don’t taper too much at the bottom. This one is just right. Add some glitzy special-occasion accessories, and you’re ready to go to that bridal shower, baby shower or even a wedding.
